We stayed here 4 nights on our Archers Italian Showcase Tour and what should be a good well managed hotel turned into a major disappointment. On arrival we were given our room key but on entering the room the smell of stale cigarette smoke was overpowering and we immediately returned to Reception where we informed our Tour Director and were...

Spent a couple of nights here as part of a tour, lovely big bedrooms, terrific views from the swimming pool and terrace, very friendly and helpful staff. The only draw backs for this hotel is the isolation if you don't have transport and the evening meals. The breakfast is fine but the evening meals are very poor, not sure if...

I think this hotel is such good value for money. We like that it is a bit like Faulty Towers - really good fun and feels local and has Italians vacationing there as well which I see as a compliment. A sense of humor and service for whatever you ask - literally when all the other guests are off out...

This nice little hotel lies in the heart of Tuscana. The rooms are spacious, you have a wonderful view on the countryside from the balcons. Problem: no air-conditioning in May. Two swimming pools: one inside the hotel, that's why the ground floor is a bit too damp, the other one lies outside with a great view from the water to...

Great hotel in central Tuscany. Older style but clean and well kept. Good base for exploring the area. Nice pool and great views down the valley. Large room and balcony. Would liked to have been able to stay longer. Well priced with excellent breakfast. Friendly staff.

We stayed here after several nights at other locations around tuscany. Booked this hotel in a hurry and it was a terrible mistake. The ground around the hotel are lovely but the hotel itself is just a cheap budget hotel. terrible decor, looks like it was untouched since the 80s. We got a room on the top floor, there is...

A very peaceful hotel, with a garden outside your hotel room, what is there not to like! Room very large, with easy chairs, good amount of wardrobe space, desk, TV and comfortable beds and very modern bathroom. Outside the room there was a seating area with loungers and table - ideal if you were there in the summer to sit...

Arriving here from Rome with a coach party, we were so happy with the view, it was like home. The hotel was very comfortable but the food wasn't the best! I seriously suggest a new pathway up from the road should be made, we found the accessibility was very hard. It was a good start to our tour of Italy.

After reading other reviews we were dreading being at this hotel for 4 nights with a cosmos tour. Fortunately there had been a new chef appointed. The food was good and typical Italian but that was why we visited Italy!!? The hotel was very good along with the staff. The pool was a must after traveling all day and the...

Well, about all comments I read on tripadvisor on this hotel are true! The rooms are clean, nice and big enough. The airco did function (we had 36°C outdoors); the pool indoor and outdoor is great!
